Swine Flu Jab

I'm getting told conflicting information on who the very first priority group is

I read on the BBC website and the government website that asthmatics etc are the very first priority group to have the jab but someone I know who is a nurse said that pregnant women are the forst group

I'm in Scotland so from a purely selfish perspective I'm wondering if Scotland are doing it differently. I thought people with weak lungs would have been the obvious first priority

not sure who is to get it first, but this makes a strong case for those with respiratory problems.

Thanks for posting that Woody, think I will watch that as I have always been very susceptible to flu and before getting seasonal flu jab would get hit badly twice a year.

Been ill with a weird virus for the last few months and been diagnosed with pernicious anemia which made me feel crap so really do not think I could cope with getting floored with flu
